Nursing Home Sepsis Lawyers | Romanucci & Blandin
Sepsis, also called septicemia, is a potentially life-threatening bacterial blood infection. Usually, the body is able to eliminate the bacteria in the blood with white blood cells, but if the white blood cells face a large amount of bacteria, sepsis can occur.
- Irregular heartbeat
- Loss of appetite
- Rapid breathing
In many cases, sepsis can develop along with an infection in another part of the body, including the skin, respiratory or gastrointestinal infection. Meningitis may also develop along with sepsis, which is an infection in the central nervous system. In very severe cases, sepsis can lead to an infection in the heart, brain or even death. If you or a loved one has suffered from sepsis, our nursing home sepsis attorneys can help you with your case.
Romanucci & Blandin have worked with clients on a wide variety of nursing home malpractice cases, including cases involving sepsis. Nursing home staff have a duty to their residents to protect them from harm, including developing sepsis. Sepsis prevention included monitoring patients’ skin to make sure they are not developing bed sores and taking certain steps to prevent bedsores from developing. The skin is one of the leading sites where infection can occur that leads to sepsis.
